RCP graduates bid farewell to programme

More than 50 graduating students from the Roving Caregivers Programme (RCP) bid farewell to the programme as the foundation had been laid for them to meet the challenges of higher education. Coordinator of the programme, Judith Hull-Ballah, emphasized to the gathering at the Sandy Bay Learning Resource Centre on Thursday, August 16, the importance of building a very good foundation in early childhood education.{{more}}

According to Hull-Ballah, “The RCP is paving the way to the creation of geniuses. RCP enables children to meet the desirable outcome requirements for knowledge and understanding of the world through its home-visiting programme. Some of the requirements for mathematics are met through thinking of shapes, sizes and quantity. Language and literacy requirements are met through talking about experiences and ideas; using books and using pictures to communicate meaning. The personal and social requirements are met through group work and the one-to-one stimulation. The fine manipulative movement required in physical development is provided for indoors while building blocks and in the outdoor environment. The large motor development is met while kicking the ball and walking on a straight line.”

The importance of education cannot be underestimated. The training of a human mind is not complete without education. Without education, man is as though in a closed room and with education he finds himself in a room with all its windows open towards the outside world.
